misconceptions about productivity hacks

Hack equals shortcut. Shortcuts can be shortsighted, misleading, and simplifying. It’s as simple as that. People like the phrase “work smart, not hard.” That’s all nice and cute, but until you have done the hard work, you have no idea what the smart work is.

Nothing beats the work itself, and no hack can save you.

Start working now, and after a year of consistent work, look back and find a way to optimize your work.

Until that time, ignore all hacks.
